Tinashe - Party Favors (f. Young Thug)

You’d think Tinashe would be due for a break. The singer not only released her debut album Aquarius< /em> nearly a year ago, but she built on the momentum left behind from that album by dropping her Amethyst mixtape this past Spring. Not to mention that she joined Nicki Minaj on her Pink Print tour this summer.

But Tinashe isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. The songbird has another album set for later this year in JOYRIDE, and yesterday, she revealed the first leak from the impending LP, “Party Favors.”

Tinashe’s staple on her debut was mostly dance records, but her free projects often emphasized a more slowed down sound. “Party Favors” is in line with the latter, a seductive lullaby on which Tinashe lets her voice float and put her listeners in a trance as she insists she’s bearing gifts for the person she’s got an eye on at the party. Young Thug enters at the three-minute mark and actually doesn’t detract from the mood at all, his raps weaving in between the tapping snare and flutes as Tinashe continues to harmonize in the background. It may well be the singer’s most radio-ready record since “2 On.”

Stream Tinashe’s “Party Favors” single down below, and mark your calendars accordingly – the singer’s sophomore LP JOYRIDE touches down this November.
